2015 Site Preparation for Upcoming Planting Day


We are progressing Wairoa Stream restoration again this year.

Magnificent progress has been made by a committed few to tackle the impenetrable weeds and clear the way for track-building and planting.

We picked up from where we finished planting last year and cleared another 130m of difficult terrain toward Sammaree Reserve choker with weeds, spoil and rubbish! We removed large gum and pine trees and hauled out 5 trailer loads of rubbish – oil filters, tyres, beer bottles, plastic, car bodies, boat trailers - and buried an outcast concrete carpark! We created large piles of chip mulch and approximately 12 truckloads of green waste are waiting to be taken to a green fill site.

Wairoa Stream Planting Day 2014 - 1 Step Closer

IMG 5337 - portrait2014 marks the second year of planting at Wairoa Stream.

A vast amount of clearing weeds & rubbish went in to preparing the site upstream of Cobham Road Bridge. Another successful planting day in June at the Wairoa Stream Restoration (Kerikeri) saw 1500 plants put in the ground by a great team of 35 delightful volunteers in just under 3 hours!

Wairoa Community Planting Day a Success

pd230613nadwairoa10-redWith the Tangatapu Wetland restoration on the Rawhiti Peninsular well underway, we've now set their sights on Kerikeri's Wairoa Stream, starting with a fun Community Planting Day that was held on Sunday 23rd June.

The Wairoa Stream starts near Mt Pokaka Pa (at the top of Bulls Gorge), skirts the eastern fringe of central Kerikeri, runs under the bridge on Cobham Road, along the back of Kerikeri Primary School and into the Kerikeri Inlet. The stream was a travel route of historical significance to both Maori and European settlers.


Open Day on Wairoa Stream

Living Waters has initiated landowner engagement with an open day at Marty Robinson’s property, Kerikeri Organic, on Wairoa Stream. Marty was the first landowner to respond to 30 letters sent to landowners by Living Waters contractor Louise Wilson inviting them to utilise support offered by Living Waters. Situated at the headwaters of the Wairoa Stream, Kerikeri Organic is the perfect place to start a riparian restoration project.
